Preparing your Home for Remodeling

Preparing your Home for Remodeling

A home remodel is a wonderful undertaking, and you'll likely keep reminding yourself how wonderful it will be all the way through the process. Choosing the right home remodeling contractor is a major component in not losing your mind during a remodel, and another is making the right preparations beforehand.

A home remodel is a wonderful undertaking, and you'll likely keep reminding yourself how wonderful it will be all the way through the process. Choosing the right home remodeling contractor is a major component in not losing your mind during a remodel, and another is making the right preparations beforehand. Hint: When you discuss how long the project will take with your remodeling contractor, add extra time for any problems that may arise, then mentally and emotionally prepare yourself and your family for inconveniences that will take place.

Completely empty the area you plan to have remodeled, removing any pictures, mirrors, or other things that could fall from the vibrations of the demo and rebuild. Box up any items you won't need to use until the project is complete, placing them where you won't have to walk over them on a daily basis. If you're remodeling your kitchen, prepare some meals ahead of time and/or take into consideration the cost of eating out. You may also want to purchase disposable plates, cups and silverware to make clean-up easier.

Protect your carpets and furniture by covering them with plastic sheets, making certain heavy-traffic areas or walkways leading to and from the remodel sight are covered. Place a plastic sheet around the workspace to help keep dust from travelling throughout the house, and try to be out of the house during construction hours. Discuss any days or hours you'll need the construction to pause with your remodeling contractor ahead of time.
